Inova's commitment to research and innovation focuses on bringing new treatments to the patient’s bedside safely and quickly, advancing clinical innovation in Northern Virginia and beyond.
A foundation for Inova's research vision is the Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) – a not-for-profit research institute delving into the next frontier of healthcare innovation: personalized medicine.
Personalized medicine emphasizes the customization of healthcare to individual patients. It involves the use of genetic information about an individual patient. The future of patient care lies in understanding the genomic makeup of individual patients to help prevent or manage their diseases. ITMI is helping pave the way for that future.
In addition, Inova sponsors numerous research studies conducted by our nationally recognized researchers in collaboration with other healthcare organizations, major universities and global pharmaceutical and biomechanics companies.
